Kit Dysart, the heir, knows he must marry well to keep it alive. At his sister's wedding, he meets the vibrant Daisy Chudleigh and her more subdued cousin, the heiress Matty Verrall. In love with Daisy but troubled by his family's decline, Kit chooses to marry Matty. Unfortunately for all three, Kit and Daisy are unable to forget each other. 'When Matty, growing increasingly unhappy in her troubled, empty marriage, decides to re-create the estate's garden, she discovers solace and a gift of which she never dreamed. This tale of love and gardening, is a poignant novel of love, loss, and, ultimately, a new flowering between the two world wars.'
